I am sure as most of us you have found your camera lens fogged up at one time or another. This usually happens when you go from a cold area to an area with a higher temperature and humidity level. Now this isn’t a big issue if it happens on the outside of the lens, but if this happens inside the lens then it can cause problems if not taken care of right away. Fogging on the inside of the lens will make your shots look less sharp and if not taken care of immediately can cause molding.
This can also be a major issue if your camera isn’t very air tight. Condensation can form on the inside of the body of the camera where the electronic components are located. If these components are exposed to moisture they can produce rust, mold, and eventually short circuit.
To avoid these issues you want to adapt your camera to the new area’s temperature slowly. The best suggestion is to carry a camera bag. Let the camera sit in the camera bag in this new area until it warms to match or get closer to the area’s temperature. Then after you think the bag has sat in the area long enough then take out your camera. By doing this you are allowing the coating on your lens to last longer and lengthening the life of your camera overall.
We hope this article helps you out to avoid any issues of fogging or condensation with your camera. If taken care of properly your camera can last a very long time. If you are in need of a new lens or camera stop by http://www.42photo.com
